Strategy and Rent Law Lobbying - Gotham Gazette article

The Gotham Gazette, Strategy Meetings SIgnal Coming Flurry of Rent Law Lobbying


Excerpt: 

There are differing proposals for how to improve rent control for tenants and it is unlikely any individual bill proposed in the Legislature will become the solution as a bill package will almost certainly be hashed out in secret by Cuomo and the leaders of each house. But a few of the ideas include limiting landlords' ability to increase rent after repairs so that once the repairs are paid off rent would return to a baseline. There is also talk of ending vacancy decontrol and stopping landlords from being able to increase rent by 20 percent once an apartment becomes vacant.
